Who Are You?


I’m am a girl. You talked at my Jewish Camp and it really touched me.
Whose arms do you fall into?


My friend, Sophie. She’s extremely loyal and is really nice.
What is the one miracle you are waiting for?
I’m just waiting for something amazing to happen to me.
Whom do you miss the most?


I miss my best friend from my old school. We were really close, but now we rarely talk.
What are you scared of?

I’m scared of being alone, mostly: my friends and family not loving me.
What is your favorite memory?


It’s not a particular memory, just being at camp. It’s my actual home, where I can be myself.
When was the last time God spoke to you and what did He say?


At camp, I asked Him to make something unforgettable happen. He didn’t make one thing in particular amazing, but instead gave me the gift of being at camp.
What words are you holding onto in your pockets?


The words that you said to us: Things Don’t Happen For a Reason. Things Happen and Then There’s a Reason.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?


Those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter
What advice would you give to your parents that will help them in raising you?
Be there for me, but don’t smother me. If I need help or advice, I will come to you, but you need to be there for me.
Is there sometimes an emptiness inside you and what does it feel like?


There is an emptiness inside me. I feel like nothing’s in my stomach and my heart feels like it’s breaking.
Are you enough?
I don’t think I am. When I look in the mirror, I don’t always love what I see back.
